    First things first. This is the fifth book in a series and I highly recommend to start with the first one and read them in order.A serial killer is at work in the Hollows, trying to make the killings look like suicides. And somehow the I.S. seems to be covering up those killings, while the FIB wants to solve them, enlisting some help from Rachel. But it would not be Rachel, the adrenaline junkie, if she didn't get into way more trouble than this warrants for, crossing demons and master vampires and were alphas along the way and doing one or the other unbelievable thing.As always in this series, very good reading, although, at the very end, things get a bit out of hand and happen a bit fast. The buildup to get there is very enjoyable, though.

    Note: this is book 5 of the "The Hollows" UF series and the installments rely heavily on each other plot-wise. And: there are spoilers for events in prior books here!ReviewTwo thirds or so in the book I thought: well, this is it. I'm done. Nothing is going to change, Rachel is still agonizing over Ivy and vice versa, and does stuff solely for the sake of the thrill. No planning, no backup, no thinking of consequences. No, worse: whenever Rachel brings incredible danger over herself and others, she shrugs it off saying stuff like "well, this is how I am, I need danger, so what!?". That attitude combined with her ever growing stupidity in handling stuff (and sc*****ing up) made me so angry at her, I nearly choked in my anger. And I have to admit that I was relieved that finally finally, payback time had come. And she pays dearly. I know, this is not how it's supposed to be, the reader getting eager for the main character to have to pay the piper (I'd be devasted if that happened to Kate Daniels, Mercy Thompson, October Daye or the likes!). But Rachel had grown so unsalvagable stupid in every little thing she did or didn't do, I had to either see her grow up and fast or drop the series entirely. So when the consequences of Rachel's actions finally take their toll and she sees what she herself did to make it so (and I don't mean the annoying taking of blame for all the things she actually isn't responsible for), she shows signs of evolving into a person I can finally take seriously.Another saving grace of this series is the cast of secondary characters that don't feel secondary at all. Well, aside from Iyv, who shows neither emotions, nor anything going on inside her. She seems to only exist to have a relationship with Rachel. (And should they ever be anything else than "friends", if you want to call it that, then I'm really outta here. Aside from the fact that same-sex relationships don't do it for me, the vamps here with the binding-thingy just creep me out.). But Jenks is as great as ever and Ceri, oh wow Ceri.... She has a memorable speech going at one point and she now is officially on my "the really cool bad-a***"-list.Plot-wise "For a few Demons more" is a whole lot more engaging than its prequel. Detective Glenn once more has to ask Rachel for her Inderlander expertise, since there are a few really suspicious suicides of some weres. And since Rachel finds proof of murder, the investigation starts. OK, it's a bit more complicated than that, as is normal for Rachel's life. There is also the job Trent wants her to take as a bodyguard at his wedding and crazy demon Newt out looking for something in Rachel's church (creepy on a whole new level). Al is back and wants Rachel's help of all things and another villain reappears in a horrendous way. There is so much happening, but to keep from spoiling the good stuff, I'll close this with telling you that not much is, as it was at the end of this book. But although infuriating and heartbreaking stuff happens, I'm glad for the turn the series, and especially Rachel, take. I have high hopes for the future!

    Da ich mehrere "The Hollows" gekauft habe- ich ging vor nach der Liste der Autorin [...] -und ich von allen gleich begeistert war undbei allen das gleiche Problem sehe ist dies ein Copy/Paste Kommentar.Die Protagonistin ist sympathisch, der Handlungsverlauf spannend, die anderen Personen interessant.Es gibt Magie, Action, Story und Humor.Wenn jemand die Bücher in großem Abstand liest, oder eh nur ein oder zwei lesen wird, dann empfehle ich es total.Mein Problem:Es gibt einen bestimmten Vorgang, den die Protagonistin nicht will.Es ist menschlich, dass man nicht für jede Meinung zu 100% auch Argumente hat, aber das hat Grenzen.Und diese Grenzen werden überschritten.Es ist das IMMER GLEICHE Geflenne der Protagonistin in diesem Bereich,das zunehmend unlogischer und auch gefährlicher für ALLE Beteiligten wird.Sie stellt sich nicht der Realität, sie hat keine echten Argumente.Ich kann nur vermuten, dass versucht wird, den Charakter tiefer wirken zu lassen.Wenn man die Bücher immer las, als sie rauskamen, hatte man vielleicht kein Problem damit.Liest man aber Buch nach Buch, vielleicht zwei an einem Tag,dann gehen einem diese Stellen ungeheuer auf den ... naja, Ihr wisst schon.Für jedes Einzelbuch würde ich 5 Sterne geben, aber da ich die Serie lesen wollte, geht das nicht.Diese Stellen waren einfach nicht mehr erträglich für mich. Darum habe ich aufgehört die Serie zu kaufen/lesen.

    Eines der schönsten und besten und gleichzeitig eines der furchtbarsten Bücher der Reihe da es kein klassisches Happy End gibt. Das wiederum hilft der Storyline für zukünftige Bücher und ist von der Autorin durchaus mutig, aber es tut weh, weh, weh.Die Story selbst geht rasant dahin, bietet einige sehr lustige und viele actionreiche Szenen und wartet mit einem überraschenden Ende auf, welches die Autorin stilistisch sehr gekonnt umgesetzt hat. 4 und nicht 5 Sterne nur deshalb, weil ich noch immer wünschte, das Ende wäre nur ein böser Traum gewesen.Bloß nicht neu einsteigen mit diesem Buch, sondern die Reihe von Beginn des ersten Buches an lesen. =)

    Die Hollows Serie begeistert mich schon seit dem ersten Band 'Dead Witch Walking' und gehört meiner Meinung nach zu dem besten, was die Urban Fantasy Branche derzeit zu bieten hat. In a Few Demons More gelingt es Harrison die Spannung nochmal nach oben zu schrauben und viele alte Bekannte (Trent, Piscary) tauchen erneut auf und mischen kräftig mit. Nachdem im letzten Band Jenks deutlich im Fokus stand, wird hier nun das ambivalente Verhältnis zwischen Rachel und Ivy deutlicher und auch verzwickter für die Protagonistin. Harrison gelingt es eine sehr starke auch durchaus kribbelnde und bisweilen erotische Spannung im Hintergrund zu erzeugen, was wirklich keinem anderen Autor, den ich bis dato gelesen habe in der Art gelang.Das Buch ist durchgehend packend und die Figuren lebensecht und plastisch. Thumbs up! Ich freue mich schon auf weitere Bände!
